Everex 10 Inch Cloudbook

Everex is designing a larger version of its Cloudbook portable to compete directly with the Eee PC 1000, says the company's assembly partner FIC. The 10.2-inch system will be relatively high end with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor as well as a 1.3-megapixel webcam and the comparatively rare addition of a 3G modem; WiMAX will be an option for users of Sprint's Xohm service or other providers of the 4G-grade service.

The unnamed sequel would also promise up to 2GB of RAM and make room for an ExpressCard slot and either a four- or six-cell battery depending on the model, giving it battery life more like that of full-size notebooks. The choice of operating system isn't mentioned but in the past has involved the gOS version of Linux.

Pricing isn't available for the notebook, although a launch is scheduled for November. The already announced 8.9-inch Cloudbook Max should arrive earlier, shipping in sync with the September launch of Sprint's Xohm network in the US.
